Read on for all her tips and tricks on false eyelashes.

Step 1:

Application of Mascara

The initial step of applying false eyelashes does not actually involve a mannequin. “I like to start with a light coat of Mascara,” says Gonzalez. This will help the eyelash strip blend superior with your real eyelashes. She calls it “camouflage” for Dummy. One of our favorites is the L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara for its lightweight formula that mixes easily with false eyelashes.

You can either apply a light layer of glue directly to the strip of eyelashes, or apply a dab of glue on the back of your hand and pass the strip through. Whichever method you choose, make sure you don’t use too many products. Slightly inflate the glue until it becomes less wet and sticky (this usually takes about 30 seconds), then you can apply it. Gonzalez’s favorite glue is the Peck lash Couture Strip Eyelash Glue in black.

Step 4:

Apply your eyelashes

Be sure to mix different lengths – small, medium and long -so that they mix well. Try the Ardell Lash Faux Mink Gloves for this Look.

Gonzalez also recommends pecking at Falscara to wake up those eyelashes. “They evaporate perfectly and are not applied to the eyelashes, but underneath, which is why you can’t see the frame of the eyelashes either,” she says. “They are perfect for those of us who like this eyelash extension look.”

How to remove false eyelashes for minimal damage

Although peeling false eyelashes can be very satisfying, removing them the wrong way can remove your real eyelashes. Take a makeup remover to avoid pulling in this delicate area. “I like to use an oil-based solvent, paying special attention to the roots,” says Gonzalez. “They will literally help you slide.”The Lancôme Double Action Bi-Facil Eye make-up Remover is a gentle two-phase make-up remover that removes all traces of Mascara and eyelash glue residues.
